“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
Have you ever really stopped to really analyze this quote by George Santayana? Have you thought about it this way? #SaturdaySocial 🧵
George Santayana wrote this quote in 1905. 1905! Think about this a moment. This quote about the importance of remembering history so as not to repeat the mistakes of the past was written before WWI and WWII. We were slow to learn, but learn we did.

"Sometime a labor I would like to see legal, we're making illegal. We're doing two things. We're creating a society of really honorable, decent, loving people that are in violation of the law, and exacerbating relations with Mexico. -George Bush 1980 #Immigrants 🧵
They have a problem with 40-50% unemployment. Now this cannot continue without the possibility arising where can we have trouble below the border and we can have a hostile and strange neighbor to the south" -Ronald Regean 1980

A briet history of despicable Donald Trump moments that should have ended Republican support but didn't: 🧵 #fridaymorning1) When the public found out about Trump on tape saying he would grab women by their P***y without their consent, the GOP was only upset that it was released. They demanded accountability....of the person that released it...not the person that showed ZERO respect.

Control. That is what the so-called "Freedom" loving GOP is running on. They simply want CONTROL but they call it Freedom. There is nothing else they want. What else do they run on? Election fraud? Womens rights? Patriotism? Being Christian? Oh well, allow me: #tuesdayfiction
So, election fraud right? Well, let me tell you what the GOP has done with their control over THAT. They have accused Dems of stealing an election all while getting themselves arrested for trying to....steal elections. #VoteBlueForSoManyReasons bostonherald.com/2022/09/14/gop…

"He must have come from some broken place which would have caused him to go on a journey like this by himself"
-Actor Scarlett Johansson upon finding out the origin of her ancestors that came to America in 1910 searching for a better life.
Think about this a moment:
Her story is like so many stories we see today. People coming to America with no money, but their pockets, hearts and soul are full...of hope. The story becomes one of triumph over adversity...until we say its from Mexico. Then Republicans call it an invasion. Smh

Republicans want you to be uneducated. Why? so when they tell you a lie you cannot come at them with evidence. Here are a few examples:
1) Republicans told you that Covid19 precautions were akin to slavery and that masks were akin to child abuse.
An EDUCATED individual would know masks are worn in surgeries, by medical personnel, and NIOSH has shown their effectiveness against bacterial and viral particles

Do you know what should insult, upset and enrage Republicans and Americans in general with @RonDeSantisFL ?
The man has a degree in HISTORY, a law degree, AND served in the military but does everything he can to invalidate, attack and dishonor all three. #sundayvibes
He has a law degree and, despite knowing full well there is no scientific or legal basis for overturning Roe, he has helped attack women and take their options.
....one degree wasted

Summer vacation. I remember looking forward to it all year when I was in school. These days its different. These days we are grateful summer vacation is here Bechtel, for this brief moment, we don't have to worry our kids will die at school. Isn't that the saddest thing?
I'll tell you something sadder: The Uvalde shooting wasnt the first time little kids in America were killed in school. Sadder still? GOP members of Congress with NRA money in their pockets have pushed back against any attempts to help stop this problem. Why?

The Guiness Book of World Records states the youngest child ever conceived was 21 weeks and 2 days. Scientifically, the ability 2 breathe on your own is the test of life. Legally same standards. The people interrupt the SCOTUS at dinner and home because they used NEITHER standard
There is no argument that can be made from a legal standpoint to force the elimination of #RoeVsWade. The SCOTUS ignored the science and blindly spoke only of "right to privacy". This right IS of importance and nullifying it for political means goes beyond Abortion. But I digress

#168Republicans voted against an alert system, similar the Amber Alert, that will warn of a mass shooting in an area. How ANYONE can be against such a common sense safety measure intending only to inform the public and keep them safe is beyond me, but lets analyze. Her we go:
Chip Roy of Texas said it spends "money we don't have" ...well Chip, maybe stop spending $100 Million dollars on anti-abortion centers that use deception to target people seeking abortions! Your war to force women to have babies cost more than your indifference to their deaths

Although we should NOT be using religion or the Christian Bible as if it were the Constitution of the United States this Trumpian Supreme Court has insisted on ripping up the Constitution and attacking women in the name of God....so let's just see what GOD says:
"Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being"
We are not human until we take our first breath. This would most likely indicate our first breath is our soul entering

I have been asked why support for Donald Trump is so popular for so many individuals and the only possible explanation I can find is ignorance. When u are a Trump Supporter facts are an inconvenience and issues have only a black or white solution even if they are more complicated
Before the Trump Supporters existed, many people would not engage in political, economic or sociological conversation because they lacked enough knowledge to publicly voice their views. Donald Trump fixed all of that with the ABC, 123 method of argument:

If you are an American and would like to be actually INFORMED then keep reading. If you would like to remain ignorant then Fox News is available and move on:
Here are the FACTS about oil companies and gas prices:
"Between 2011 and 2020, the oil and gas industry failed to use more than 20 million acres of approved onshore federal leases. These leases were terminated, expired, or relinquished without ever going into production. " This is CONFIRMED by the Bureau of Land Management.

Gas prices are high because of profiteering from oil companies and obstructionist tactics from Republicans. The biggest proof of this is the inability of the GOP to propose any solution to the problem themselves. #fridaymorning1) Fossil Fuels are not infinite. They come from remains of plants and animals that died MILLIONS of years ago. That is science. Since the belief of many Christians is that the Earth is only 5000 years old, makes sense they think fossil fuels just....appear!

Mayra Flores boggles my mind. She represents areas that should despise Trump but she rode his support to her position 1) Mexican descent: He called them rapists and murderers. He dropped the amount of allowable LEGAL immigrants, and instituted a weath test to prove u had money
2) Mayra is a woman and the GOP along with Trump have made it clear she has NO right to decide what happens with her body. Raped by a stranger? Dad? TOUGH! Pregnant? TOUGH! SMH

I read about Brian Ulrich today. He is a member of the "Oath Keepers". He admits to seditious conspiracy, to having weapons at the Mayflower Hotel, and wanting to overturn the results of the election by force. He was crying. Why do I bring this up? Well here we go:
Without accountability for the ringleader and the members of Congress that fanned the flames, it simply looks like the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers, blah blah blah all woke up January 6th and decided all at the same time to attack the capitol with coordinated precision.

There are many issues that Republicans use as slogans when they run for office because they are too complicated for a Republican voter to understand. Donald Trump is proving every day the average GOP voter cannot handle complex issues. He made everything color by numbers. Like:
1) Donald Trump says you either love the police of hate the police.
Republicans come out in droves with the #BackTheBlue hashtag and amplify the #DefundThePolice hashtag. The issue? Not that simple. You CAN support police officers and demand an end to police corruption and abuse.

If you vote @GOP and do not like being lied to, then wake up and smell the coffee people because here is #truth : 1) Politicians like @laurenboebert and @Jim_Jordan keep telling you Joe Biden controls gas prices. But they are up GLOBALLY, not just domestically. 2) The party u voted for because u believe in them has people like @SenTedCruz that is CONFIRMED to gone to Cancun when a winter storm left Texans exposed to the elements. People DIED to include a 10 year old. The politician seen MOST during that time? Democrat @BetoORourke

Now that #MarjorieTaylorGreene is gone I want to post my poem #BreathlessRegret. A reminder I have seen the fear in the eyes of those she led to their deaths with her lies:
I will tell you the thing I will never forget.
Watching them die in breathless regret.
Clinging to sheets as if it contained their soul.
Begging the disease to please let them go.
Listening to science a moment too late.
Allowing the misinformed to determine their fate.
The oxygen fails, the body goes next.
We look on as they scream to God "not yet!"

I spend my work days trying to save the misinformed that end up in intensive care because Fox News, The GOP, and people like Greg Abbott put them there. How do I know? What do u think they watch on TV before they get so bad they end up upgraded to our ICU? My off days? I INFORM:
When an #unvaccinated individual comes into our unit, we all get filled with dread. We know where this is going, but we try our best not to show it. By the time they reach us, their oxygen requirement is already too high to go home. Many come in annoyed that we are "making such

Working the #Covid_19 ward again today. Patient dying on a ventilator. Young. Sad. The nurse tells me its a sad case because, when the pt could speak, they said they didnt know who to trust about the vaccine. Herein lies the problem, and the reason I am angry. MANY Americans
had already decided where they wanted to place their trust in political and societal terms. This trust was abused by people that are STILL in a position to take more lives with their words and actions, and we are doing NOTHING. As Edmund Burke said:
